Multi-Modal Center 

Annapolis Transit is administering a project to provide a new Multi-Modal Transit Center to better serve the growing mobility needs of the traveling public, including residents, businesses, and tourists.  The new Transit Center will also be a key component supporting the City’s Transportation initiatives.

A site selection study is underway.  Identified sites will be studied to determine the best location and move the project forward to environmental studies and preliminary design.

Annapolis Transit, along with its consultants, have hosted two public meetings  -June 26th and July 24th.

These sessions provided an opportunity for the public to review the project scope and to provide feedback on site location, facility amenities, and modes of transportation to be connected.
